London-Heathrow Airport

London Heathrow Airport in west London is used by about 65 million passengers annually and is thereby the largest airport in Europe and the third largest in the world. It is one of four international London airports, making the British capital one of the world's most important aviation centers. The first civilian flight from London Heathrow Airport took off in 1946. Previously, the British Aviation Ministry had taken over the area around today's Terminal 3 to build a new passenger airport. In the 50s and 60s, the paved runways and the terminals 1 to 3 were developed at Heathrow airport. With the connection to the London Underground line "Piccadilly Line" in 1977, passenger traffic increased enormously, so in the 80s, another terminal (T4) was added, which is used by British Airways and its partners exclusively for intercontinental flights. The 5th and latest terminal was inaugurated in 2008. The older Terminal 2 was closed and demolished in 2010. Since then, Terminal 1 has been used for mostly domestic and European flights and Terminal 3 for intercontinental flights operated by other airlines. Flying from New York to London Heathrow takes about 8 hours, Hamburg to London Heathrow about one and a half hours, and Munich - London Heathrow about two hours. Cheap flights to London Heathrow are operated by British Airways or KLM, Delta Air Lines or Deutsche Lufthansa for example. Transport from London Heathrow airport to downtown London is convenient using the London Underground Piccadilly Line, which serves the stations Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3 as well as Heathrow Terminal 4 and Heathrow Terminal 5. There are also overground trains such as the Heathrow Express and Heathrow Connect trains which link London Heathrow with Paddington Station. The journey takes about 15 minutes (express line) or 25 minutes (Connect line). Between the terminals, the Heathrow Express and Connect trains are free. Those arriving at London Heathrow in transit and who wish to travel to one of the other London airports can also use the National Express coaches, which connect London Heathrow with Luton, Gatwick and Stansted. By car, the airport is accessible on the M4 and M25 highways. Renting a car is also possible and cars are available at one of the big car rental companies based at London Heathrow airport: Sixt, National, Hertz, Enterprise, Budget, Avis and Alamo all have offices at Heathrow Airport.
